Photovoltaic (PV) is a solar power technology that uses an array of Solar PV modules to convert sunlight into electricity. The Southeast is considered is considered a good area for Solar PV installations. The most important requirement for choosing a site for Solar PV is to have un-shaded, due-south exposure to the Sun. Modules can be roof, ground or pole mounted. The typical angle for mounting Solar PV in Georgia is a 30 degree tilt, which is close to our degrees north latitude.
Most customers do not attempt to install a Solar PV array large enough to completely supply their electricity needs. You would typically work with a licensed Solar installer like SOENSO GA who is a dealer and installer of SchÃ¼co Solar of Germany. SOENSO GA works with architects, builders, consultants, contractors, developers, engineers, LEED APs, property managers and other professionals to assist them with incorporating sustainable building practices such as Solar PV systems. Under LEED NC multiple points can be earned by providing Solar PV that meets LEED-established percentages of buildings energy requirements.
